Denver Broncos vs. Baltimore Ravens Best Bets and Prediction

Baltimore Ravens (7-4) look to punch their playoff ticket for the fourth time in 5 seasons as they host a Denver Broncos team (3-8) that has fallen short of expectations for a variety of reasons.

Baltimore returns home after seeing its four-game winning streak snapped by one point in Jacksonville.

Nothing went right for Denver in November as they went winless in the month and have dropped 7 of their last 8.

This is the 14th all-time meeting between the two squads, with Baltimore holding a 7-6 SU edge in the series.

An ATS Record

In games played in Baltimore, the Ravens are 5-1 SU. Looking at NFL odds, these two sides are among the worst in the NFL when it comes to ATS records, with the Ravens being 4-6-1 and Denver being 3-8.

In fact, of all of the NFL matchups this week, it is the only one with two teams below .500 ATS, making it extremely difficult for those taking part in Broncos vs Ravens betting to come away with a winner.

Denver Broncos Analysis

Offense

Despite the addition of Russell Wilson, one of the league’s most accomplished quarterbacks in the last ten years, the Broncos’ offense has yet to fire on all cylinders.

In fact, the team has not scored more than two touchdowns in each of its last seven games. Painting a bleaker picture, Denver has been held to 10 or fewer points four times in the span, making Denver Broncos odds not look too great.

Predictably, the team ranks dead last in the NFL in points scored, averaging 14.3 per game, and is outside the top 20 in all major offensive categories.

Defense

The Denver defense has ranked among the best in all of the league in 2022. However, given the team’s offensive struggles, it hasn’t been good enough.

Doing a quick scan of league team stats, Denver is the only team in the top 10 of total defense and points allowed with a less than .500 record.

The team has been especially good against the pass, allowing the third-fewest passing yards per game.

Baltimore Ravens Analysis

Offense

As has been the case in recent years, as Lamar Jackson goes, the Ravens’ offense follows. 2022 has not been an exception, as Jackson has stayed healthy, taking every offensive snap thus far.

As a team, the Ravens are 12th in the league in total offense, but given Jackson’s running prowess, they rank 2nd in the NFL in rushing yards per contest. Baltimore’s 25 points per contest rank them in a tie for 8th.

Defense

For the past two decades or so, the Baltimore defense has been its calling card.

The team’s defensive prowess had enabled it to win cold-weather football games and playoff games, even when it was less talented. In 2022, the Raven defense has been much better and stingier at home.

Statistically, they are 15th in total yards allowed but have been nearly impossible to run on, surrendering just 82.0 yards a contest, the second-fewest in the league.

In fact, Baltimore has ranked in the NFL’s top 10 in rushing defense nine seasons in a row and is well on its way to making it 10.

It is always safe, when making Baltimore Ravens predictions, to expect the opposition to fail miserably on the ground.

NFL Stats and Standings 

A quick look at the NFL standings shows Baltimore tied atop the AFC Central with Cincinnati. Denver finds itself looking up at the competition in the AFC West, sitting in last, one game behind Las Vegas.

NFL Pick: Ravens (-100)

Most Remarkable Player for this Matchup

Lamar Jackson

One of the game’s most versatile signal callers, Jackson is having another solid season. Thus far, he has completed 62.1 percent of his throws and connected for 17 touchdowns and just seven interceptions.

On the ground, the fifth-year player and former Heisman winner has run for 755 yards and three touchdowns. He appears to be on track to his third-career 1,000-plus yard rushing campaign.

Mark Andrews

Also in Year 5, Andrews, a product of the University of Oklahoma, has cemented himself as one of the game’s premier tight ends.

While he gets most of his notoriety for his pass-catching, he is regarded as one of the game’s most feared edge blockers.

In 2022, he caught a team-high 52 balls for 601 yards and five touchdowns. Something to look at in Broncos vs Ravens betting is how many times Jackson targets his favorite receiver. Baltimore is 4-1 SU when Andrews is targeted more than ten times.

Courtland Sutton

Yet another player who was picked out of the 2018 draft, Courtland Sutton, has been on a roll as of late for Denver. He has 17 catches and 52 for the season in the past three games.

The SMU product is on track to catch 80 balls, a career-best. In 2022, he has only found the end zone once as Denver has struggled to score.
